For Snowboarding along the Front Range, Metro Denver is a much better choice. You'll have a lot more options for quick hit stuff. From Golden, Bert is about 50 minutes. I can get to the Summit of Berthoud in about 70-80 minutes from my place way out east.

The springs are not as bad as some would suggest, take a week and vist. There is no way your wife will endure more than a few months commuting I25 between denver and the springs if thats what your thinking.

I do not disagree with this statement, but it's not that bad. If you're a republican you will probably like it...democrat not so much. Also, there are some shady spots but mostly it is safe.

I am not a fan of the springs, but if you do get a job down here hit me up with a PM. I have a hard time finding "dedicated," people down here to split driving time with to go riding. Worst part for me living down in CoSprings is that it is so far from the mountains.

You've got a 14'110 ft mountain right outside city limits.

The Springs is definitely not a bad place. I have several friends who live down there. You could end up in a much worse spot. Good hiking, climbing, kayaking, mountain biking close by. Just not snowboarding.

Not really something I do much of, but there are most definitely a ton of Forest Service roads in the South Platte. Which bumps right up to the Springs. Probably even more stuff in the Wet Mountains. Rampart road has a ton of Dirt Biking that is popular.

I am sure there is stuff that qualifies as off roading in the area.
